Winter Storm 2009 (Da-NAH!!)











Well.  That's what the news splash screen had up all day yesterday as it gave the play by play.  (Without the 'Da-NAH' part.)  And though it snowed steadily all day long, the result was below expectation, I think.  Less than a foot.  I'd say 8 inches in the city.  Certainly not worthy of such news coverage, at least here in Manhattan, but the viewers like drama, right?  Not sure what the actual measure ended up being, but when I went out this evening to get some groceries in the neighborhood the sidewalks were mostly shoveled, and streets pretty clear, too.  I came upon an ice sculpture randomly set out on the metal dock of a loft building, and lots of pretty holiday shop windows.  Forgive the photo quality; it was windy and dark, so shutter speed was slow, and I was moving.  Sharpness is not the best, but you get the picture.  I'm happy it will be a White Christmas for me.  Those are the best ones.

thanks for taking me to NY in your pictures. Love the rich colours.
Snow is really coming down...although blowing horizontally right now. In places its blowing the snow clear off the roads and pathways and in others its building huge drifts. Hello snow shovel.
I am cuddling up to my warm computer and a mug of tea.
Your pictures are framed and wrapped and waiting impatiently to be opened.
Keep on snapping.

Oh what a beautiful 'scene' your words paint, Johann! I wish I did not have to work almost everyday (except Christmas) and could enjoy it, too! I am headed back momentarily. Happy Holidays!

When we got married on Christmas Eve, it snowed so a white Christmas for us, at that time, was unusual too. And we got married in NYC ! That is a fabulous icy piece of art! Happy holidays from Tokyo!
